Answer the 3 questions

Please write minimum 600 words short essay for each of your (3) three questions. You
may use case studies from class readings or do your own research (provide url citations). Opinions
welcome. Try to think through the issue from all angles; identify the problems and solutions.

1. Since the beginning of the human species, we have produced both biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste. However, when humans lived in small groups and moved often, the
buildup of waste and effects on the environment were negligible. Discuss the issue of scale in our
history of waste and give some examples. How did larger populations encounter problems with
the same types of basic wastes (address these three: sanitation, fire/carbon, food production
waste) that their ancestors produced?

2. One of the costs (wastes) often not considered in manufacturing is the enormous use of fresh
water. Give some examples of commodities (agricultural and/or manufactured) that use a lot of
fresh water. What happens to the water after it is used in these processes, and why is this
problematic for the environment and for the citizens that rely on the same water sources?

3. As consumers, we can participate in post-consumer recycling and waste reduction programs such
as composting, but the majority of waste and pollution is coming from the manufacturing sector
(acquiring resources, making products, transportation). As citizens, what are some of the ways
that we can affect the polluting behavior of the manufacturing sector corporations? What are
some examples of successful citizen action in cleaning up existing pollution and in preventing
further waste and pollution?
